Key highlights:

  • Texture, the Solana-based DeFi platform, has raised $5 million in its latest fundraising round.
  • Texture focuses on maximizing the returns of $SOL stakers by taking advantage of the best returns opportunities of multiple Solana-based DeFi protocols.
  • Texture, which will launch a product called SOL Power Yield Strategy, will offer leveraged staking in smart yield pools.

Texture, a DeFi platform running on the Solana blockchain, has raised 5 million USDC in its latest fundraising round. Semantic Ventures, Wintermute and Jane Street Capital participated in the investment round, jointly managed by Sino Global and P2P Capital. Developing return maximizing solutions for DeFi users, Texture will use the collected funds to accelerate the development of its services.

Focusing on yield management across the top Solana-based yield sources, Texture will soon launch yield generation and configuration solutions that are still in development. The platform, which has also created a pool of strategies categorized by return and risk type, will use an algorithmic leverage strategy for investors to get more returns from their $SOL stake positions. The name of this strategy was determined as SOL Power Yield Strategy.

Texture’s leveraged staking protocol is a strategy where users can achieve maximum returns with minimum liquidation risk. Texture automates this strategy by integrating Lido for liquid staking, Solend’s main pool for depositing stSOL and borrowing SOL and Orca for swapping harvested rewards to automate compounding. The smart contracts that Texture has developed will dynamically monitor the pool’s LTV, rebalancing LTV as needed, and applying algorithmic risk management strategies to minimize the risk of liquidation. In this way, users will earn high APY returns from SOL coins depending on the risk level they choose.
